- Jeff B. Tunstall, General Manager, CraftMaster Homes

Gail, thank you so much for your meaningful display of character and kindness. We agree that we learned so much in this meeting with you helpful to our pursuit of a home purchase. Additionally, thank you for the experience of love. Authentically, love is a dynamic commitment to another's growth and guidance. We experienced the wise, dignified, tender touch of God's hand in our meeting with you. Blessings to you and all your broad network of relationships. Words don't capture our experience today with you.

God has truly been a blessing for my family. She is patient, kind, and an awesome listener. She is not interested in a quick sale, however, makes sure that the customers needs are met to it's entirety. I would recommend Gail as your personal realtor because that's exactly what she does: personally tailor your housing needs and wants. She exceeded my expectation twice and if I had any housing needs in the future, I would not hesitate to start the process with her a third time.
